Fox Searchlight is trying to enter the Oscar race with the upcoming film, The Favourite. Most people believe it’ll be nominated for several awards, and when you look at the cast & crew, it’s easy to see why.
The royal drama, directed by the extremely talented Yorgos Lanthimos, stars Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz.
Indiewire gives us more details:
“‘The Favourite,’ written by Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara (it’s Lanthimos’ first directorial effort not from a script he wrote or co-wrote), centers around the wicked rivalry between Sarah Churchill (Weisz) and her cousin, Abigail Masham (Stone), to become the trusted adviser to Queen Anne (Colman). IndieWire’s Michael Nordine hailed the film as Lanthimos’ ‘crowning achievement’ in his A- review out of Venice.”
The movie is expected to hit theaters November 23, which is a prime awards season release date.
